LAS VEGAS, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Made in America, Yamie Chess: The Adventures of Tigermore and the Mind Angels®, the new supplemental K-8 math learning aid series that uses an educational cartoon chess universe to teach children math, and the algebraic and geometric basis of classic chess, scheduled to make its worldwide debut at the American International Toy Fair in New York on February 16, 2014, is aiming to raise America's position in math performance among industrialized nations to number one in the world, an educational mission that will raise U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by $1 trillion dollars in income per year, evidenced by figures released in Harvard University's Kennedy School report of August 2011, "Globally Challenged: Are U. S. Students Ready to Compete?"
Perfect for homeschooling and supplemental math education outside the classroom, Yamie Chess® supports the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Curriculum Focal Points for STEM education, and works for each child, at their pace, inspiring young minds with the beauty of numbers, math and logic.
In 2013, Yamie Chess® won official selection to the Johns Hopkins University, the Beverly Hills Film Festival sponsored by Coca-Cola, and won a major award at the Canada International Film Festival, together with mainstream selections to the Arizona International Film Festival in Tucson, sponsored by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and SOHO International Film Festival sponsored by Mayor Bloomberg's Office of Film, Broadcasting and Theater, Made In NY.
After winning the Honolulu International Film Festival in April 2013, Yamie Chess® then won selection to Oklahoma's deadCENTER film festival in Oklahoma City, and in May won selection to the Utah Arts Festival's Fear No Film KIDS! Program for children aged 3 and up, which is the biggest outdoor arts festival in the State of Utah, closing down Salt Lake City in the fourth week of June every year, with an attendance of over 80,000 people.
Made in America using 100% U.S. labor and 98% U.S. materials sourced from America's heartland, Yamie Chess®'s educational math learning aids have a critical gap to fill in the educational marketplace to combat math phobia, and enable schoolchildren as young as five to benefit from a powerful STEM learning framework that builds upon the proven benefits of classic chess, advancing mathematics in elementary and middle schools.
Yamie Chess also has a role to play in eliminating the so-called Matthew Effect, helping children from all socio-economic backgrounds to see a career in mathematics, or a math-related discipline like physics, engineering or computer science, as an achievable goal that is reachable through hard work and the support of their school and teachers.
At a time when Harvard University's K-12 report is grading Yamie Chess Ltd's home state of Nevada at a disappointing 43rd, and below the national average, Yamie Chess® is offering a credible math learning aid that will strengthen math proficiency in U.S. schools, giving parents and teachers a valid strategy to improve math education at home and in both public and private school systems, and put American math performance in schools firmly where it belongs – leading the world and top of the class.
